Little Falls theater company presents play on 1905 murder

LITTLE FALLS — Local theater company, Little Falls Summer Musical, announces its upcoming play on the 1905 murder of Annie Kintop. “Darling,” a new true-crime play by Taryn Verley, will be Aug. 5-8 on the Charles D. Martin Auditorium stage in Little Falls. “Darling” retells the story of Kintop, a 24-year-old Morrison County woman and her murder in 1905, as well as the investigation that followed. In addition to dramatizing facts of the case as they were reported at the time, “Darling” gives voice to a pioneering young woman whose life was cut short. Also, it depicts how members of the community coped with a heinous atrocity committed in their backyards.
